Sunrise paddle

Start your day in the best way possible.If your tired of looking at the same treadmill then change your routine and enjoy a morning paddle. 

Boost your energy on a one hour morning paddle to the most peaceful section on Toronto islands-the Bird Sanctuary.  Seat in the canoe, close your eyes and listen to the magical sounds of nature, before paddling back to the Harbourfront.  After the paddle, seat down at the picnic table, for an optional coffee and muffin.


At this time in the morning you are almost alone on the lake with no traffic and calm waters plus new friends to share the experience.

We will be running this event every Wednesday throughout the season so please come and join us on the water.

    Hi Chris, Based on your message last night, I showed up at 6:40 this morning to be told the paddle was cancelled. While I am certainly glad that Alex took precaution with the white caps on the water, it would have been nice to have known this before showing up in the rain this morning.

      Hi Julie, this is the first time we have tried to run this event but im glad Alex made the call to cancel because of the conditions, we try to leave it as late as possible concerning the weather to notify everyone but with the start time with this event its hard to predicted the weather the night before, im sorry for the inconvenience as the one thing we cant control is the weather, hope you can make it down again with us and enjoy the experience throughout the summer.

      Hey Olivia, always bring a bottle of water, and maybe an extra layer depending on the temperature and of a course a smile :D all life jackets and paddles are included.

      Hi Angini, yes you can the trips we take are ideal for beginners and before every trip we will give you a guide on how to paddle.

    Hi Chris Although not a morning person, this sounds like a great way to start the day. Plus I want to get a little practice on the water before the Full Moon trip I've signed up for. See you on Wednesday.

    Chris, I hope to be there. The only think that will prevent me from coming is bad weather or if I get called in to work. Looking forward to this.

    Hey Chris, I LOVE This Idea! Can you also have a Saturday Sunrise for those of us who love to come but can't make it downtown during work weekday mornings?

    June 2, 2014

    • Chris P.

      I was thinking that, i get the feeling tho some people might sign up then head out on a friday night and bail, ill see how this works out mid week an if we dont get much interest then for sure ill change it to a Saturday morning.
